AMARILLO -- Amarillo Police say to watch for anyone you think may be "prowling" a parking lot.

They say to be on the lookout for people you don't know who may be approaching you and to be prepared to put some distance between yourself and that person.

Sgt. Barbee says "being aware of your surroundings and the people in them" is a key part to personal safety.
